George Bush Is Using GM to Screw the Environment One Last Time
November 17, 2008
I was watching Dana "Pig Missile" Perino on CSPAN this morning, explaining how George Bush is in favor of helping GM. But he wants to take the $25 billion in loans to automakers from the 2007 Energy Bill and repurpose them, he doesn't want to use funds from the $700 billion Wall Street bailout (which Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have indicated they would like to do).
Congress approved the funds for a Department of Energy program that would help the automakers to develop fuel-efficient vehicles.
Got that? George Bush wants to kill the program that would build more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Nobody at the press conference called Perino on it.
Big Oil, still in the White House.
